  • EVERYWHERE i go people make stupid comments about me going into labor. and yes my hand is always on my stomach- my baby is moving and i'm going to feel it.

    just like you don't comment on fat people eating, leave pregnant women alone

  • You should take advantage of the attention you are getting bc you get to be pregnant once in a life time so be happy you are able to have a baby I bet some woman can not and wish they were in your shoes. So be happy don't be such a's also the

  • I used to get sick of whenever I would call someone they would ask "oh my god- did you have the baby!! Are you in labor!!!" Can I get a hi, how are ya' at least!?
    IT will be over soon, enjoy the attention- people are juist worried about us pregnant women because we are so "delicate..."

    oh, do you need to sit down? Are you hungry... do you want a glass of water?

  • Nah, you're not being a bitch, at least I don't think so. When you're that far along you are exhausted, ALL the time! And hormones aren't helping either. I feel my baby move all the time as well by putting my hand on my stomach. I guess it's in everyone's nature to worry about us, but sometimes it can be frustrating when it's all you hear!

  • i think you have every right to be irritated. my mom's got this friend that she's with like all the time and this lady everytime she sees me gets this sad look on her face and is like "are you okay? are you sure? do you need anything?" and i get to the point where i'm like..."f**k off! i'm fine!"....people's concern is great and all and god bless them for showing they care, but enough is enough! pregnant women touch their bellies! its the closest we get to holding our baby before he/she is born...its what we do. don't think your being a bitch, you're just fine! congrats!
